Tuscany Black Kale (Brassica oleracea)
Kale Black Tuscany, also known as Cavolo Nero, is a nutritious and easy-to-grow vegetable. It has a long harvest season that runs from summer to early spring, when it bolts and flowers (it is hardy to -15C). The blossoms are edible in the same way that 'Purple Sprouting Broccoli' .
The rich dark colour, high nutrient value, winter hardiness, and wonderfully structural fern-like growth habit of Black Tuscany have made it a must-have in the modern vegetable garden.
